Police Seize Guns Before A Crime Is Committed

Another law for your own good:

Using a unique state law, police in Connecticut have disarmed dozens of gun owners based on suspicions that they might harm themselves or others.

The state’s gun seizure law is considered the first and only law in the country that allows the confiscation of a gun before the owner commits an act of violence. Police and state prosecutors can obtain seizure warrants based on concerns about someone’s intentions.

But let me guess: this only applies when the state does it. I think the citizens should also have the power to use that same law against state criminals who might harm others.
